I have designed (with help from friends) a complete solution for controlling the Kato N Scale turntable with DCC and locally directly with a keypad. If interested read here: Kato Turntable Digital Control Version 3 – N Scale Model Railroads : A Personal Journey
After attempting to run my engine from the approach track onto the finished build Atlas N scale turntable I carefully wired I found I my engine would stall immediately trying to run onto the turntable. A quick check with a volt meter revealed no power to either rail of the turntable even though...
I know the answer: "well, it is your layout", but I want to know if this (attached image) makes sense: the turntable as part of the classification yard. Not my design, I found it surfing the web but I find it very interesting. I am still searching for a design for my 280x80cm additional section...
I just wanted to let you know that I contacted my hobby dealer today. He told me that Walther's contacted him and that they believe that once again the DCC turntables will be delayed due to indexing problems.
I was wondering what every ones opinions are on Ho DCC turntables. At the price that they charge for them it would be nice to know what people think of the different brands.
I am looking at the Walthers 130' DCC at $283.00 is it worth it, or should I look elsewhere?
Thanx for your help...
